1955 Packard Patrician Paint Code

Post by 55PatPac » Mon Mar 08, 2021 12:43 pm


We are restoring a 4 door 1955 Packard Patrician. We bought it from a very close friend, so we are making it as original as we can. With that being said, our paint code is ED. Can anyone tell me what two colors that actually is? We have a book with all the colors, but are a little confused on which ones.So we just wanted to double check before it was painted. Thanks in advance for your help!!

Hi Christy:

If you go back to the main page and click on "Reference" you'll find all the paint code information, as well as some paint chips. Be careful interpreting the chips, time hasn't been kind to the color preservation and electronic media all impose their own distortions.

"E" is Ultramarine Metallic and "D" is Zircon.
